Dave,

Do you still have a picture of him that we can post her in remembrance?

I Knew Mike. We both grew up in Newport, RI and went to high school and surfed together. We weren't close, but we all ran in mixed circles. He was a year ahead of me. Class of 1990. He was definitely a fast tracker, intense and very smart. To me, it was obvious he was destined for success. Last time I saw him was, I think, some time in the fall of 1996. We were hanging at the house of mutual close friends drinking beers. At some point, we all went out to a bar and for more cocktails. He was driving a brand new M3 or M5 BMW. Flashy, yes. But he earned it for sure. Didn't change the fact that he was still a chill guy to hang out with and talk too. The night ended, we all said goodbye, and went our own way. The next time I saw his name was when I read his obituary.


RIP Mike.

RIP Mike.

When I paddle out to Ruggles later, I'll catch a few in your memory.
